The formerly reclusive and elusive Lauryn Hill has announced a second leg of dates for her tour that has been hitting small, intimate venues. The trek begins on March 16th in Orlando and wraps at the New Orleans Jazz Fest on May 7th. More dates are expected to be announced in the coming weeks. so Hill really is coming out of her self-imposed, semi-retirement that spanned the '00s!
"One of the benefits of playing venues smaller than the ones I'm used to allows me the opportunity to not only reconnect with my supporters but to expose them to a portion of the musical journey I've been on which the world for the most part has not had access to," the singer said in a statement. "I've never shied away from being musically adventurous, nor am I known for being a lightweight when it comes to lyrical content or musical exploration. Getting back out there to perform is a lot like resuming a strenuous sport after having been away from it for a while, but eventually the muscle memory kicks in, and each day brings progressive strength. It's an exciting and real process which these audiences will get to witness."
Do you dig Lauryn Hill or did you lose interest when she disappeared off the pop culture radar?
